A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is where a group of health professionals and patients can come together to address issues that effect health and health services in their local community
We are always interested to hear from patients who would like to join the group and have the opportunity to make a difference. We encourage PPG members to attend a face to face meeting or offer ideas virtually. The PPG is a welcoming, social group and would like to create a bridge between the practice, our patients and the local community to improve the health of our practice population - and have fun while doing so.
Occasionally we will ask members to volunteer to arrange events, such as awards ceremonies or health education events.
The group recently arrange a drinks and mince pie event to celebrate our 2 year anniversary of being in our new building.
We encourage any new members to join the Patient Participation Group but especially young people, people of working age, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups. Everyone is welcome.
